partial derivative means u treat other variable as constant. u know this ?

baldymcgee6Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Right, so we treat y as a constant in the first one..

absolutely! that was my next statement, that u need log diff. here.

baldymcgee6Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
In my experiences with log diff I always had a function in the form of y = f(x)^g(x).... So what do we do here?

baldymcgee6Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
do we write y = ......?

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
taking log on both sides, u get log y = g(x) log f(x) then use product rule

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
u'll also need a chain rule for this....

oh dear! the y on left and on right are different, u should have used g or some other letter

oohhhhhh.. that's where I went wrong... this is off my last quiz :/
 one year ago

baldymcgee6Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so it'll be g'/g on the left?
 one year ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, after doing product rule , u resubstitute for g

same for 2nd question, just replace x with y and y with x

baldymcgee6Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
right... I just messed up on calling the function y... messed with my head.

thanks again for the insight!

I'm not going to do the second derivative, I think I can get it... Thanks so much!

I mean, i'm not going to do it on here.. :)
